    camera operator vs camera man

    What do you think is the difference between camera operator and cameraman?
    Is the latter almost like a camera director?

    Re: camera operator vs camera man

    It could be a gender issue.

    Re: camera operator vs camera man

    I suspect the job is the same no matter what you call it. I agree with MikeNewYork. Once upon a time, all camera operators were male so the term "cameraman" covered all of them. These days there are plenty of women doing the same job. I don't know if they use the term "camerawoman" but I imagine the cover-all term "camera operator" is now used so that both sexes are included.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
